Subject: Universal Themes
Deeply moving -- this film provides a look at life in Shanghai, yet the setting could as easily be Chicago or New Orleans. "The Goddess" is beautifully acted, and I would recommend it to anyone. Be prepared, however, to provide your own music. I think Faure's slower orchestral pieces are a good complement to the general mood.

Subject: Emotions Conveyed
It's always been pretty amazing to me how some silent movies (especially Chaplin) could convey a marvelous storyline and depth of emotion without sound. This film is of that variety with the mother fully pulling heartstrings through the entire view.
